Law & Order

We are a nation of great values
Our boast rings proud,
When it comes to law and order,
And defences of our border,
The punishment of many felons,
We have voices clear and loud.

We are a nation of great values
With no need for further vision.
When it comes to punishment and crime
Convicted miscreants do time.
We use no stocks or canes or whips
Just throw them into prison.

We are a nation of great values
For these we’ll ever fight.
At times of far flung incarceration,
Of criminals from this fine nation,
At our request our government,
This terrible wrong, will try to right.

We are a nation of great values.
Lock up some refugees!
We look at those who dodged the queues
Who don’t hold to established views.
For entry to our splendid nation,
They should beg on bended knees!

We are a nation of great values!
Paedophiles we most revile.
Perceived as threats to family dear.
Stay in gaol, live nowhere near!
Ensure they’re far from me and mine
Let others have them for a while!

We are a nation of great values
And it was ever thus,
With no social contracts in our mind
Just visions of the “criminal kind”.
Keep this distinction, very clear,
Between the “them” and all of “us”!
